Postpartum.. what a journey. I thought that once my boy was here I could wait a few weeks and jump on the fit - post-pregnancy workout wagon. . Hmmm not so fast. . I was stumped by a storm of hormones that sometimes brought me to my knees in tears. I wish I was being dramatic😵 . My abs are in need of some extra TLC to close a two finger gap. My pelvic floor has needed strengthening to bring me back to jumping around without leaking 🤯 . It’s been a journey of madness, vulnerability, love and humour of course 😂 . Don’t read this and feel anything but admiration for my woman’s body. Whether it births a child or not, these bodies of ours are freaking amazing. . My goal? To bring this temple of mine to its peak health and strength. It deserves it, I deserve it and my family deserves it. . We are all worthy of the highest quality of life, don’t you think? . #postpartumhealth #boymom💙 #mysecondbaby
My girl had her first experience at the nail salon! Another first together 💗 . One of my whys in so much that I do is to be able to be there for all (at least most) of my littles firsts. It’s important to me. It fills my heart and my life cup 🙃 . I am so grateful to have had the time to be with her this morning and i am working towards being able to have more of it 🙌🏻 . I want to be able to truly be present, because time goes by so fast, doesn’t it? #postpartummama #girlmamadailylife
So much yes to this!! . I can hear my girl singing “let it go, let it go, let it gooooooo” 😂🤣 #mylittleelsa .
I cannot believe that it has been a little over 100 days since my boy was born! . This postpartum isn’t going according to the plan I had so perfectly laid out. It’s been an emotional obstacle course with a surprise diagnosis. There are moments that I doubt. . However, when I look at my amazing littles and at this photo I am reminded that ultimately I am not in control. I am reminded that God has a perfect plan for me just as my body had the perfect plan to change on a molecular and structural level to create, nourish and birth my precious littles. . I know in my heart that what will unfold will be way better than the perfectly laid out plans that I had. Way better. . Surrendering is a journey of love, faith and gratitude . Love yourSELF today, love your body today, love your life today and always do your best. It will all unfold perfectly 🙌🏻❤️
Dinner is served! I was craving Italian and I made it work without pasta and dairy. . Spaghetti squash with mushroom tomato sauce and topped with basil and vegan parmigiano (see my stories for recipe🤗). . Exactly what I needed 😏
